Hello, students, and welcome to our blog.
Let’s work today to get everyone on the blog, and writing.
Our address is 545andbeyond.blogspot.com
The first thing you must do is get a Gmail account. Then, using that Gmail address, please write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will invite you to the blog. You must accept the invite and follow the steps in order to use the blog. Let’s do this in class.
Once you are a member, you will see your Gmail address appear in the upper right hand corner, and only then can you post to the blog.
--To do a New Post, you must again find that link in the upper right hand corner. Click New Post and a window will appear to let you compose.
Please title all your writings, and use a username that is either your name or nickname so we know who is writing. Only class members will be on this blog.
GOAL: For your first post, write one paragraph where you introduce yourself and some things about you.
In your next paragraph or paragraphs, write a response to one of the two essays you read for today. What struck you the most and seemed important? What did you learn or think about in a new way, if anything? Begin your response with a direct quote and favorite passage taken from your active reading.
Good luck, have fun, share your ideas, and just let me know when you need help!
